Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Hamner (U. of Alabama) and Turner (U. of New Mexico) offer strategies, skills, insights, and resources for professionals to incorporate in their work with parents, rather than suggest that there is a specific formula for good parenting. They cover topics including the need for parent education; infant brain development; the parents' role as nurturer; parents and adult children; parenting in diverse family types, including a variety of ethnic and structural forms; and parenting in high risk families, such as adolescent parents or violent households.
